Hi, you guys!!! It’s been so long since I’ve last made a blog post and being back from my incredibly long hiatus feel so weird and comforting and exciting, all at the same time.
Before anything else, I would like to profusely apologize for my absence. In abruptly taking my indefinite hiatus, I have consequently left a lot of responsibilities and I am sincerely sorry for that. Know that it is absolutely not my intention to neglect them and I will do my best to make up for my shortcomings! ❤
WHERE HAVE I BEEN? 🤔
So… It’s been, what, a year? Holy shit, it just dawned on me that I actually didn’t blog for a whole actual year. Yikes.
To be honest, I didn’t quite plan on taking a (very) long hiatus from blogging. I am completely in love with book blogging and I really didn’t want to stop doing it. However, as cruel as it is, life keeps getting in the way. Before this one, I have also taken up another hiatus before because of personal issues as well. I tried to promise myself that it won’t happen again but, alas, I failed.
I started my first year of university around the same time I took my hiatus last year. Taking up a degree with the stigma of being a particularly draining one and which I wasn’t entirely sure I liked, I hope you can imagine the extreme pressure I was constantly in.
I expected that college won’t be easy on me, so I think I made the right decision to take a break from blogging. I prioritized my academics above anything else in this decision so I really focused my energy there. I’m happy I decided to go for a hiatus because If I didn’t, I think I’d have continued just for the sake of routine and not really get to enjoy it as I normally do. Not to mention, I’d put up crap posts which doesn’t bode well for me and my perfectionist ass.
Now, I’m really excited to be back because I miss blogging and most specially, I MISS YOU GUYS! I missed this community so much and I hope I’m still welcome.
WHAT IS MY “GREAT NEWS”? 🎉
Well, considering the current state of our world with this pandemic, this hardly counts as great news. I know that there are more pressing issues and fantastic achievements out there but I’m just so over the moon when I received this news… Apparently, I got into the Dean’s List for my first year in college!!!
After a lot of sleepless nights and countless emotional breakdowns, it’s so heartwarming to see that all my hardwork for college has been acknowledged. Sooooo excuse me while I treat myself to a good book and some junkfoods.
SO WHAT NOW? ✨
Now, expect to see a lot more of me and my blog! I really want to post a lot from now on, although I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself. I’ll be blog hopping a lot as well, to try and catch up with what’s going on with you guys!
How are you guys, by the way? I hope you’re all doing well, considering the circumstance we are all in. Please stay safe, physically and mentally, especially to those enduring this pandemic by themselves; we’ll get through this. If you need someone to talk to, please know that you are completely welcome to shoot me a message here in the comments, my email or on Twitter DM’s.
That’s it for now! I have a lot to catch up on, and again, it’s good to be back. Au revoir, for now! 😉
